5 New Famous Buildings of the World

I have finished a few more of my buildings....at great peril to my sanity. haha    by the time these are all finished...i will be, too. i repeat....these are HARD. haha

Stonehenge...Wiltshire, United Kingdom   The site and its surroundings are included in UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites. A legally protected site, it is maintained by the Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England. 

Basket Building...Newark, Ohio   This building is the corporate headquarters for the Longaberger Company, maker of famous baskets.

One World Trade Center...New York City, New York    This building is part of the effort to memorialize and rebuild following the destruction of the original World Trade Center complex in the attacks of 9/11.

Great Sphinx of Giza....Al Ahram, Giza, Egypt   It is the largest monolith statue (carved from a single massive stone or rock) in the world and the oldest. The Sphinx measures 241 feet long, 63 feet wide and 66 feet high.

El Castillo, Chichen Itza, Tinum .... Yucatan, Mexico   El Castillo is one of the most visited pre-Columbian structures in Mexico even though climbing the monument is no longer permitted.

And, this, my friends, ends your history lesson for today. more to follow.....hopefully soon.
